We took a ride on the world-famous Goodyear Blimp as it flew above the Daytona International Speedway where it provided aerial coverage for NASCAR in February. Our journey began at the Blimp Base in Pompano Beach, Florida — from there, the Blimp flew 200 miles north to a small airport in New Smyrna, where it would call home for the weekend.
We got to spend about five hours in the Blimp, which was updated in 2014 in collaboration with the Zeppelin company. The new model isn’t technically a Blimp, due to the internal structure inside its balloon, or envelope.
This is what it’s like to fly on the iconic Goodyear Blimp, which isn’t accessible to the public — only the crew and invited guests are allowed to go for a ride.
